  • 1 bunch about 6 cups loosely packed watercress (you can sub arugula)
  • 3 cups cubed watermelon
  • 4 oz about 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1/3 cup toasted almonds
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed finely shredded mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • a couple of fat pinches of maldon salt and a couple of grinds black pepper


  • Combine the watercress, watermelon, goat cheese, almonds, and mint in a large salad bowl. Just before serving, ¬†drizzle with olive oil and vinegar, season with salt and pepper and toss. (Or if you're feeling fancy, you can dress the greens separately from the other ingredients, and compose the salad nicely on individual plates. Drizzle each salad with a teensy bit more dressing and a pinch of salt.)
